Oil paint is a wonderful form of paint, with many advantages in itself.
Among other things, oil paint contains many more pigments than any other type of paint and this helps to give the oil paint a nice and high gloss and lightfastness.
One of the unique characteristics of oil paint is that it takes a long time to dry. Depending on how thick your coat is, it can take up to a year to dry completely. This gives you the opportunity to change your work regularly, but for this very reason many beginners and hobby artists love acrylic paint, which dries much more quickly.
